? >> second terms have been tough. even for franklin roosevelt. he started off his second term with his first political loss. here is why second terms are tough. number 1 many presidents often put out their best ideas in their first term. they don't even know necessarily if they are going to get a second crack. secondly, washington can be brutal. you are a little bit battered after a first term. and finally you have been in the washington bubble much too long and you do and everyone is calling you mr. president, and you have all of these handlers, and pollsters and hucksters who always bring you down to the lowest common denominator. my first advice to barack obama, take all of those pollsters and hucksters and second them to a island far, far away for the next four years. >> michael: listening to what you just said and coming off of that, president obama a lot of people think he has been in his own bubble. does that make him unusual? >> it does make him a little bit unusual. and i think maybe there's a chance here. look, if you want to be a great president, you have to ove

this is an interesting tidbit, president obama will match president franklin roosevelt's president of being sworn in four times because last year chief justice roberts flubbed the official oath and they had to do it again out of an abundance of caution. yesterday he was sworn in. today will be the fourth. so we're going to hear the speech. we think it's going to be hopeful tone. optimistic. the about the has to get right to work. deal with the debt ceiling immigration and of course, we know gun control. agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. >> the only ones i could find that were any newsworthy. >> announcer: ladies and gentlemen, it's "the stephanie miller show." ♪ i'm walkin' on sunshine ♪ ♪ i'm walkin' on sunshine ♪ ♪ and it's time to feel good ♪ ♪ hey, all right now ♪ ♪ it's time to feel good ♪ >> stephanie: okay. if you say so. it

for the fourth time since franklin roosevelt. >> jennifer: amazing. >> john: very true. that's a piece of trivia that won't be matched any time soon. >> jennifer: while we're watching the inaugustral procession, the first president to actually ride in a bulletproof car was lyndon johnson in 1965, michael shure. the first president to ride in a car at all, excuse me, david shuster, are you there? the first president to ride in a ceremony in a car was warren harding back in 1921. so shuster, can you see from where you are. you've got a unique spot looking back at the capitol. can you see any of that happening? >> yeah, we can see over to constitution avenue. can see the crowds blocked off. we can see the monitor. what i wanted to say about the motorcade is a couple of things. first of all, in order to prepare pennsylvania avenue for this path, they removed something like 25 different stoplights that were on poles and the other thing that they do as part of security is early this morning, the electric company and gas company will go manhole cover by manhole cover, prop them open, make sure nothing

about a president who used all kinds of executive authority. look at teddy roosevelt or franklin roosevelt. that's what presidents do. you know what that's called? it's called leadership. we want people who will lead in times of crisis. not who are afraid of their own shadows. phillip down in gainesville florida. >> caller: hi, i wanted to say i completely totally agree about what you were saying about gun control hasn't gone far enough and that you know, i think we should go in the direction of britain and australia. >> bill: i agree. >> caller: i also think the time is a little too late, you know. when obama first ran for president on hope and change, i was ecstatic to get obama in there and i was just like all of these changes are going to happen. and i was so completely disappointed when we had a democratic president and a democratic majority in the house and nancy pelosi as speaker of the house and the time to have done something on gun control would have been then. but the first words that really made me think that something's wrong here is when nancy pelosi got up and spea
